In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida. The greatest rock song of all time. I requested a wedding band play it during a couple’s dance. They declined for some reason.
Music plays a part in my chosen craft. Sometimes it is Mozart. Other times soundtracks from movies like Star Trek (2009) or Pride and Prejudice (2005) that inspire me. E. S. Posthumus has a place in my heart also.
But, Ho Boy, it is rock with its jarring rhythms that heighten tension, are in the background of the fights scenes, and the revelations that are the turning points in my novels.
I’ve gotta have Nickelback, Hinder, Linkin Park, 30 Seconds to Mars, My Darkest Days, Matchbook Romance (love Monsters), and Three Days Grace pounding in the background when I write.
And then there is Iron Butterfly.
